    New high-tech "point to point" speed cameras will be tested in the Waterview Tunnel and on a section of the Southern Motorway before the Government decides whether to roll them out around the country

    New high-tech "point to point" speed cameras will be tested in the Waterview Tunnel and on a section of the Southern Motorway before the Government decides whether to roll them out around the country


    The year-long trial of "average speed" cameras will begin around the middle of next year.

    Motorists won't be ticketed for speeding for just a few seconds - but will be, if their average speed over the distance between two cameras, exceeds the limit.

    Police Minister Stuart Nash says the intention is to stop people who are unnecessarily putting other people at risk by driving at an unsafe speed over a sustained distance.

    The Waterview Tunnel and State Highway 20, and the State Highway 1 connection at Manukau and Papakura were chosen because they're sites where high-speed crashes could be deadly.
